LG Intros Two New Ultrabooks and Windows 8 Tablet
LG's introducing a handful of new Windows 8 notebooks for the Fall.
We've seen a lot of laptops over the last couple of weeks thanks to IDF and IFA. With both shows wrapped, things are slowing down a little, but LG is looking to jump on the bandwagon with a couple of new ultrabooks and a new Windows 8 tablet. These were announced by LG Korea, so we don't actually have any details on when these will be available in the United States or anywhere else outside of Korea. CyberShack spied one of these, the 15U530, back in June when it talked to LG about its Haswell plans. LG said it would be available in Q3, so we're assuming we'll hear something about an international launch soon enough.
In the meantime, TechPowerUp reports that both the 13.3-inch 13Z930 and the 15-inch 15U530 pack ISP displays, a Core i5-4200U CPU and 128 GB of SSD storage. The 13Z930 pairs the Haswell CPU with HD 4400 graphics, while the larger 15-inch 15U530 boasts 2 GB Nvidia GeForce GT 720M graphics with an additional 750 GB of mechanical storage. There's less information available about the tablet, which features a slide-out keyboard and the same CPU and 128 GB SSD as the new ultrabooks.
No word on pricing or availability for any of the above, but we'll keep you posted!
